I am doing another giveaway event just like I did with the proving ground memories last December. This time the event is bigger and longer than ever before! You can win up to 80B worth of stuff. Yes, 80 Billion ISK!
I try out a format that has not yet been seen for such events. This event will ramp up over time, meaning you can win bigger prizes the longer the event durates.
The topic of this event is once again the old arena, or better to say the request to bring it back. It also features the Minmatar liberation day.
On July 14, 2020 the old arena got removed and the request to bring it back immediately started to emerge. While at the begin only in the Devblog post, it slowly started to spread out on to Reddit, the rest of the forums, the CSM and various player run discords and streams (mine included!). If you look at the schedule above, you also notice something that was seen in the invasions that were a thing at this time last year.
You might remember the champions of the Abyss tournament run by Torvald Uruz in April 2020. I once wanted to do the same in October 2020, but I was not able because the old arena was not in game anymore by then. Most of the prizes you can win were originally planned for this event and I still have them in a container in Jita.
But lets explain everything in more detail:
- All events take place on my Twitch stream
- There are two highlights: The minmatar liberation day and the old arena remember party, both matching with CCP run proving ground events.
The winners will be drawn using the Mobot raffle tool
Now the single events:
1. Stellar reconaissance: Friday, July 9, from 11:00 - 15:30
I will be playing some of my old arena vods on twitch and you can win the following prizes:

3. Minmatar Liberation day weekend scope skin extravaganza: July 16-19, from 11:00 - 15:30
I will be doing the Rifter FFA and giving away a ton of scope syndication skins. The best thing is, you can always chose which one you want, meaning it is a great opportunity to complete the skin set if you are missing some of them. You can select between Maller, Procurer and Megathron. First come first served. In addition to that, you can also select one of the following Minmatar ships:
- 10 Wolf

6. Old arena remember party: Saturday, July 31 from 11:30 - 15:30
Were there! The proving ground opens again for the proving conduit throwback event! We will be getting a bit of old arena vibes and finishing the event with a lot of giveaways and explosions in the “almost old” arena.
And the prizes are worth to hang out, you can win the big brothers of the old arena classics!

- This ship is used by some NPCs in the abyss, and everyone hates them!
Update: The Vargur and Paladin remain in the pool and the Minmatar Liberation prizes were doubled, meaning that everyone who wins a scope skin can also get a Minmatar ship of his choice, first come first served!
